  • May be I am biased here but unless you buy VVIP or VIP tickets you probably won't have great match watching experience here. No proper food/water arrangements, after couple of hours water prices go up like 200/- or 300/- per liter, and then no water! but again that is a management failure and I don't think they are even trying to improve. For other lower price seats, there is no roof so depending upon what weather is like, your experience will suck accordingly....
  • Green park stadium is very closed to KAN chamber. Gopala tower n DAV College. It is proud for Kanpur. Maintained at international standards.
  • Main attraction is manually score board.....one of the oldest but running stadium in INDIA....people keep practicing daily urly in the morning.....many old people's walk here in groups.....many clubs runs here.....
  • One of the oldest international level cricket stadium in Uttar Pradesh. Its wonderful to watch live matches on this ground especially from the Directorate Pavillion.🏏
